Property Description


This home is an artistic paradise set on 7.2 acres of land in the highly sought after hamlet of Hannawa Falls, NY, less than 5 miles from Potsdam or 12 miles to Canton. Formerly the home of a renowned, local artist, this home has a very large studio between the main part of the home and the attached garage with so many potential uses for this space. It could be a nice apartment for the mother in law or someone else. Over 4,100 square feet of living space that was tastefully renovated in the 90’s, make this home a beautiful space. Custom built cabinets, beautiful wood moldings, stained glass lighting fixtures, and tile inlays are just some of the unique features this home offers. Entering through the front door into a double-door foyer, the artist’s studio is to the right and the main door to the living space is to the left. There is a large, sunlit sitting room with one full wall of built-in bookcases immediately as you enter the home. Within the main floor entry there is a laundry/mud room. Continue down a short hallway and a downstairs guest bedroom and full bathroom are easily accessible. The home opens to a generous size kitchen with adjoining dining space directly next to an expansive dining room with the most gorgeous, large, sliding glass doors that open up to a large outdoor deck and patio space. No attention to detail was spared when creating this stunning GREAT room with cathedral ceiling and field stone wall with a gas fireplace and cabinets for storage. The windows in this room, as well as throughout the home, let in so much natural light but with the privacy of the wooded back acreage, you feel like you are in a private retreat. Wood flooring, oversized windows, open staircase and a large balcony complete this space. Upstairs the home offers an exceptionally large primary suite with a sitting area, master bath and a large walk-in closet. The primary suite opens onto an upstairs balcony overlooking the living room with a set of French doors. Additionally, there is an exterior balcony for enjoying your morning coffee or tea while listening to the sounds of nature. There are two additional guest bedrooms upstairs and with a separate staircase for easy access and privacy. The home sits back off the main highway, again adding to that feeling of privacy and seclusion. The acreage backs up to 46 acres of woodlot and is adjacent to the Erie Hydro Power company on the Raquette River. Don’t wait for your opportunity to see this one-of-a-kind, custom-built home in lovely Hannawa Falls, NY.
